Hey sorry for the late reply. But yeah, all my recent sketchbook work is in acrylic now. I'll be posting them all up very soon.

nice crosshatching. Don't hesitate to add more contrast to you drawing in general. That's all the advise I can think of right now, but cool stuff!.

Hey! Nice handle on traditional mediums. I like how clean and well done all your figures are. Keep it up!

nice, what medium are these painting?
Nice work dude! Keep working hard and see if like acrylic-you might like how fast it dries and how you can layer over.

you have a strong method to your drawings. I like all your figure work on post #150.
I also like the combination of color, and the gentle line drawing showing through on post #126. Keep it up!
The left hand training continues. More gestural work. :)
Wow there's so much play in your work. Great combination of graphic elements with realism.
I really like the level of unity you have with your work. Awesome job!
